When is the Best Time to Replace My Siding?
Your siding is designed to withstand a range of weather conditions. However, no siding is actually built to last forever. At some point, you’ll have to replace your siding to ensure that your home will remain protected against the elements.
In today’s post, siding and new construction expert Thompson Roofing and Construction discusses the reasons why fall is usually an ideal time for siding replacement. We also share some tips to help you figure out when it’s time to replace your siding.
Why Fall Is a Great Time to Replace Your Siding
Spring is usually the time of the year when most home improvement projects are done. But since this season tends to be really busy for contractors, scheduling your preferred company may be a bit tricky. If you want to avoid that kind of hassle, you might want to wait for fall and schedule your siding replacement project during that time.
Siding companies are relatively less busy during autumn, so you have a higher chance of having the job done during your preferred schedule and with minimal delays. Fall’s moderate weather is also ideal for siding installation since it’s not extremely hot or freezing. There is also a lower probability of sudden rain showers, which could complicate the process and delay the completion of your project.
Other Factors to Consider
Of course, if your siding is already showing signs of serious damage or it requires urgent attention, it’s best not to wait for fall anymore. Call your trusted siding contractor and have them inspect and work on your home’s exterior.
Typically, cracks, hail damage and rot should alert you that it’s time for siding replacement. In some cases, partial replacement is possible — particularly if only a certain portion of the siding is damaged. However, if the damage can be found all over your home, you will have to change out the entire siding.
